DR. MAR’HN L. KING SR.
Dr. King Enthralls
Civic Center Crowd
By Deborah Gates
Post Staff Writer
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
King Sr., Pastor Emeritus at
the Ebenezer Baptist Church
in Atlanta, Georgia, was the
guest speaker at the 21st
Annual Calendar Tea spon
sored by the Clinton Chapel
AME Zion Church’s Birth-
Month Club on Sunday, March
27 at the Civic Center.
Dr. King was officially wel
comed to Charlotte by the
County Commissioner, having
Mayor Belk present him with
a key to the city, and Mrs.
Elizabeth Hair, chairman for
the County Board of Commis
sioners induct Dr. King to the
Order of the Hornet.
Dr. King’s message con
cerned pride in one’s self. He
told listeners to face facts, and
be honest with one another. He
said that he was very proud of
himself, as^eryone should be
The theme for the event
was "The Third Century, A
Projection Toward Century
21,’ and Rev. Morgan W.
Tann. pastor at Clinton Chapel
said they chose Dr. King as
guest speaker because, “Dr.
King could best depict the
theme for us.
"This 21st annual presenta
tion is another of the small but
beautiful recurring events
that our congregation takes
pride in presenting annually,
and which we hope adds to the
social and religious awareness
of our community,’’ Rev.
The purpose of the Tea was
to assist the denominationally
supported schools, and to ex
tend their overseas mission
work, by raising funds for
these purposes. According to
Rev. Tann, no report has yet
been made as to how much
money had been raised at the
Tea, but he said, “It was a
tremendous thing. We had

Millions of Americans arc very
skeptical about President Carter
and his campaign promises. This
cynicism is deepest when the sub
ject of lax reform is raised.
One of Mr, Carter’s most
dramatic promises came during his
acceptance speech at the Dem
ocratic convention when he said:
"It’s lime for a complete overhaul
of our income tax svstem, I still
tell you it's a disgrace to the human
race. All my life I have heard
promises of tax reform, but it never
quite happens. With your help, we
are finally going to make it happen
and you can depend on it."
Most Americans relate this to
“tax loopholes’’ which have per
mitted the rich to avoid billions in
taxes. They assess Mr. Carter's
promise in terms of things like the
Treasury Dcparimcnl announce-'
ment recently that in 1975 IK2
wealthy persons with at least
5200,000 in income paid no tax.
About 6,000 other persons with
adjusted gross income in excess of
5200,000 had an efTcclivc lax rale
of about 20 percent, the same paid
by a father of three children
But if the President's promise of
“tax reform" is to mean an> thing,
it must go beyond wiping out such
